mtl // café tuyo

I loved living on Duluth during my last few months in Montreal, as it's truly the ideal street to be on. Nestled in the heart of the Plateau, minutes from both Sherbrooke and Mount Royal stations (not to mention, super close to the park), I couldn't have found a better place to live. Shoutout to Dom for letting me sublet her place!

A few of the Herbivore Society committee members were in town for the summer, and we decided to organize some outings to bond over some of the city's best (and numerous) veg restaurants. Our first meetup place is Café Tuyo, a rather unknown vegetarian spot on Marie-Anne, near Saint-Denis. Allyson, Veronika and I find each other easily, and once inside the café, we can't help ourselves from squealing "This place is so cute!" numerous times. With its cozy, mismatched furniture and diverse display of potted plants, Café Tuyo really is, well, cute. The menu features a small but enticing selection of sandwiches, soups and salads, all made with love using local, organic and sustainable ingredients. There are also classic coffeeshop drinks to choose from, including their popular Makakao and a variety of different kombuchas.

Veronika and I go for the tasty and filling Jamaican patty, which comes served with a fresh green salad. Allyson gets the tofu sandwich, and confirms it is as good as it sounds. While we decide to cool down with some ice cream from the nearby Crémerie Meu Meu (they have vegan options, y'all!), if you want to stick around Café Tuyo for dessert, you may want to try the delicious-looking brownies pictured below. Remember to let us know if you do!
